VUHL 05 Supercar Revealed














Vuhl (pronounced 'vool') has officially unveiled their 05 supercar at the Royal Automobile Club in London.

The lightweight, two-seater, mid-engined sports car has been developed by Mexican brothers Iker and Guillermo Echeverria through their design agency, Etxe.

Said Iker: "We were determined to create a highly intuitive machine that was both stirringly fast and immense fun to drive – a car we ourselves would want to own."

With plans to build only 50 units a year, the 05 comes with a price tag of $106,000. Orders are being taken now for delivery beginning in the spring of 2014. The car will be launched at this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed July 11-14.
